Ms Translation tackles the odd job of both experiencing and talking about music, using translation both as a framework and a side entrance. We are interested in music, but also in talking about music, especially (and paradoxically) where words struggle the most.
The show is comprised of seasons exploring different interpretations of translation and music. Almost always, we explore them with guests. These interpretations range from pop songs turned into football chants to looking at transcultural intimacy in countries with a history of political conflict, and how that manifests itself in popular music.
First season starts somewhere close to home. For the first interpretation, guests are invited to translate their place of origin using songs that evoke aspects of their personal experience, but which don't originate from that place.
The first guest is Serra Tansel and Ms Translation is excited to launch the show with Comet Radio in July 2019.
